How to give access to a user for a specific folder on dedicated
I connect to server like ssh root@105...
cd /home gives me something like this:
Then cd site_one, then cd public_html, then ls gives me a list of all folders on that folder.
I have 2 questions here:
1 - How can I give access ONLY to a specific directory on public_html for a user?
2 - How can I log in to the server as that user?
I created a user and trued logging in with email@example.com..... and password, it says permission denied!
I want to be able to log in and have ONLY limited access to that folder.

Moved to linux help.
Each folder has its own permissions. You can chown and chgrp to change the owner/group for a specific folder or file.
You log in to the server using SSH or whatever other connection methods you've established.
